Alasdair Allan

Alasdair Allan is a British scientist, author, hacker, maker, and journalist. An expert on the Internet of Things and sensor systems, he’s famous for hacking hotel radios, deploying a 500-node mesh sensor network for Google I/O, and for revealing, back in 2010, that Apple’s iPhone was tracking user location constantly. He has written for Make: Magazine, VICE/Motherboard, Hackaday, and the O’Reilly Radar. A former academic, he also built a peer-to-peer autonomous telescope network that detected what was, at the time, the most distant object ever discovered.
